Special Issue: “Materials for Healthcare Applications, EUROMAT 2011” published in Biomedical Materials

Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini together with Prof. J. Mano (University of Minho, Portugal), Dr. A. del Campo (MPI for Polymer Research, Mainz, Germany) and Dr E. Verne (Polytechnic of Turin, Italy) have guest edited the special section “Materials for Healthcare Applications Symposium, EUROMAT 2011” in the journal Biomedical Materials. This special section contains 8 selected papers, written by invited authors based on their respective presentations at the Materials for Healthcare Applications Symposia at the EUROMAT 2011 conference held in Montpellier (France) in September 2011. The papers in this special section cover a wide range of biomaterials designed and characterized for applications in tissue engineering. Prof. Boccaccini acted as coordinator of the topic area “Materials for Healthcare Applications at EUROMAT 2011”.
